I have been with Bhumi for the last one year and this has been the most productive time of my life. Though I go to classes each weekend to teach, almost each day I learn something new and there can be no better joy than seeing the improvement in the kids by each day right in front of u and knowing u have played ur role in that.

Hi all.. Am writing this whole heartedly and not just for the sake since I am a member of Bhumi.. Before Joining Bhumi & YHM my life was just like - dont know how to explain. My child hood dreams was building an orphanage and educating the street childrens. But i dont have any funds or investments and I lost hope. But still i have planned not to marry till i start an orphanage for street childrens. Tried for foriegn jobs for investments. God gifted me with good friend and lovable sisters and parents. They were very gud tat i dint got a chance to know how selfish were others till my college life. And i was very deppressed since every one are selfish and even my friends cheated me (even though i helped them in many ways).. I started hating life.. When I joined Bhumi I was shocked to see a number of persons who were working for six days and spending sundays for educating people. I cannot explain I was really very happy and it gave me a hope that there are many selfless people who are ready to sacrifice many things for the cause of gud and also i felt that i can really start an orphanage. I am really happpy and I am ready to cut office for Bhumi.. I feel that i have did a great mistake by joining MCA since I was forced to spend my week ends by attending the classes & i cannot take full responsibility.. If I had joined b4 2 years I wouldnt have took MCA.. And about Bhumi the persons who impressed me a lot is Vaishnavi, Mini, Mani and Vivek..

Bhumi changed my life to a great extent. I am a volunteer of program "Kanini" at Roshini Home. I teach computers at weekends to the kids over there. I see myself to be a better human being and responsible. Previously i used to be totally self-centered and ego-centric, after i became a part of bhumi things started to change and people see me as a better person. I was never involved in any kind of team work before and will never adjust with others. But seeing how bhumi works and the volunteers i tried to change myself and still doing that for the betterment of myself. I see myself evolving into a good soul and respected by many these days. It feels great to be a part of such an organization where everything is like a family and each activity is done with a lot of perfection. To be part of such a noble cause makes myself above my friends and still makes me humble. Thats what BHUMI gives you. Thanks a lot to BHUMI and its volunteers(to myself too :) )

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The simplicity and the responsibilities shown by every member of the organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could still be a no-nonsense and more humble than it is today. It would still continue to produce a account for a single Rupee spent. More importantly it will be still a single large family with no differences between anyone involved in it.

I have not yet volunteered in this organisation. But I would like to. These people are doing a great job in sharing their knowledge. Knowledge is the only thing that is available for free in this world I suppose. As a student I love my teachers but these people are more than teachers. I have got no words to explain. Great work Bhumi Volunteers. Hats off. I would like to share my knowledge one day. Yeah I will volunteer myself very soon. I am waiting for that day.. :)

My experience opened me up to a whole new world, one different from mine, one where even basic things may sometimes be a luxury. Very importantly, it taught not to be wasteful. Teaching these orphanage kids some basic IT skills was a joyful experience, as they were quite an enthusiastic bunch. I hope that their enthusiasm in computers continues and guides them to a respectable position in their careers and lives.

Life in Bhumi has changed for me as a volunteer with equalance to the kids i teach. An year back a mere routine job for various reasons now has a significance in doing the same. Bhumi is doing wonders to the children in shaping up their future and also potrays studying as fun. I m so pleased to be a part of this fun. And my experience with Bhumi has been wonderful, is wonderful and will be so too. Rock Bhumi... =)
